Empties: January 2023

Nails Inc Optic Flame | Finished this very bright orange cream, it came with some toothpaste a few years ago [swatch].
Nails Inc Optic Wave | Finished this mint cream, another one that came with toothpaste [swatch].
Kleancolor Holo Blue | A scattered holo in a blue base, I liked this but the smell was too strong [swatch].
Kleancolor Chunky Purple Holo | This wasn't a holo, more duochrome glitters in a clear base. Another Kleancolor that smelt too strong for me to use.
Kleancolor Holo Chrome | Not a chrome, a scattered holographic. This is the final Kleancolor in my collection to leave [swatch].

Barry M Mystic Purple | This polish took three coats, I've passed it on as I have similar shades [swatch].
Born Pretty Myriad Star | Another polish I have passed on, it is a nice shade though [swatch].
Born Pretty Young | Is a topper style holographic, this one I used up [swatch].

A Certain Becca Cuticle Oil Blood Cherry | I like this oil, it sinks in quickly and doesn't leave my fingers oily. The scent on this was nice but not one I'd repurchase.
L'Occitane Rose Pear Hand Lotion | This is a nice lotion, sinks in quickly. I would repurchase the formula but not the scent.
Jelly Belly Cotton Candy Lip Balm | I could tell this was supposed to be candyfloss scented, the jelly belly balms seem to be an okay formula but not sure I'd repurchase.
Superdrug Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz | This had a nice spray, I didn't reach for it often enough and it ended up expiring.

Garnier Watermelon Shampoo | CGM approved, no silicones and it does lather which is nice as most SLS free shampoos don't. The scent is quite strongly of artificial watermelon but it doesn't linger. I will be repurchasing.
Garnier Watermelon 3 in 1 Hair Food | This is very thick, CG approved. Other than it being very thick I don't think its that intensive which works for fine hair. Again a strong scent but doesn't linger. I might repurchase this but have other variations to try first.

Yankee Candle Black Cherry | These used to have such a good scent throw to it, not as much anymore. I do like the scent but I'd not repurchase.
A Certain Becca Sugar Plum Wax | A nice scent with an okay throw, not my favourite scent so I'd not repurchase.
Wickford and Co Gingerbread Wax | A nice scent but didn't have a good scent throw to it so I'd not repurchase.
Wickford and Co Mulled Wine Wax | Again a nice scent but zero throw to the smell, not one I'd repurchase.

Then and Now Throwback Nails: South Park

As today is a Thursday I am throwing back to some nails I did in 2010, and recreating them now 11 years later to see if I have improved! While I don't own all the exact polishes used originally, I have used similar colours.

000 Paint Brush
Dotting Tools
Rainbow Collection Silicone Mat

I think I have improved somewhat, but plenty of room for improvement. People, even cartoon ones are so hard to freehand!
